Koper (Slovenia) and Barcelona (Spain) are core network ports situated on the Baltic-Adriatic and Mediterranean corridors respectively. The Action will improve the existing MoS service between these ports in order to increase transport of electrical cars by sea and enable modal shift from road to maritime transport.
To this end the Action will: develop access infrastructure in two ports (Koper and Barcelona) to improve port access and railways connections. Further, the Ports of Koper, Port of Barcelona and Neptune lines as operator, will study and prototype installation of electrical charging columns.
